This week we’ve been speaking with Kim Turkington, you may well already follow her on Instagram (@loveclothblog) well, we’ve been chatting all things home with Kim! Scroll down to check out her scandi-inspired home, her favourite pieces from our online gallery and what she’s been getting up to in lockdown!
Hi, I’m Kim, originally from Northern Ireland, I moved to London about 6 years ago. I work full time as a social media manager and on the side run my blog, Love Cloth. A bit of a visual diary full of fashion, travel and everything in-between.
We recently moved in to a temporary space being renovated by Simon and his family. So it’s very much a work in progress – trying to make it feel as homely as possible. It’s been amazing to see the space change and evolve. We filled it with all our own furniture alongside building a make shift temporary kitchen during lock down.
Simon and I have quite similar style (thankfully) when it comes to interiors. We love natural fabrics and textures. Contemporary but not too minimal, taking elements from Industrial and Scandinavian design.
The most treasured pieces are the photos around the house. I love photography and capturing memories and these always make a place feel like home.
I’m a sucker for breakfast out with a great coffee followed my exploring London and meeting up with friends
I think it’s a classic, however I’m not sure we have any print in the house.
I love photography and have always had an interested in Guy Bourdin. I have also been looking at lots of Slim Aarons photography lately, I guess living vicariously through his summer vibes.
Some how filling my days with a lot of faffing around the house but also trying to get creative with my instagram @loveclothblog – Finding new ways to share content in lock down is new as I’m usually shooting out and about in London. Not forgetting the usual, lots of baking.
It’s taken us a while to build our style and it continues to change… We are trying to invest more in quality timeless pieces that will last, adaptable to new spaces as we move on.
I’m a sucker for a Sunday roast and this weekend we did Mary Berry slow cooked lamb. Weekdays I love to cook from “The Roasting Tin” – so simple but delicious veggie options too.
My phone. I FaceTime my family most days. It’s been such a great thing to have in lockdown to keep in touch with everyone. Plus the essentials, joggers and a good wine. Ha!
